The University of Mississippi Medical Center was ranked among the best hospitals and health systems to work for in Mississippi by Forbes.

In collaboration with the market research firm Statista, Forbes surveyed 70,000 employees working for businesses with more than 500 employees. Among the criteria were fair pay, safe working conditions, a culture of inclusivity, remote working benefits and diversity initiatives.

In Mississippi, UMMC ranked third in Forbes’ listing of best employers across all sectors, coming in behind the top-ranked Hattiesburg Clinic. The next hospital in the overall listing of best employers was Forrest General Hospital at 11th. The University of Mississippi’s main campus in Oxford was listed as 13th on the best employers ranking.

Molly Brasfield, UMMC chief human resources officer, said the survey results reflect the organization’s ongoing efforts to create a positive work environment.

"We spend so much time at work. If we enjoy the people we work with, and if we find the work meaningful and fulfilling, it provides the best of all worlds,” she said. “Our employees share that they feel they have both things at UMMC. This is what makes us a best place to work. This has been one of our organization's priorities, and we will keep striving to maintain it."
